[Updated: 12:27 p.m.: Ashley Durmire has been randomly chosen as our winner! Thanks, everyone, for playing.]

OK, beautiful people – want to win a pair of tickets to Thursday’s Marilyn Manson/Rob Zombie frightfest at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood?

I’ve got a pair to give away, courtesy of Manson’s team, and will randomly choose a winner at noon on Wednesday.

All you have to do is leave a comment below about why you’re yearning to see the onetime spooky kid and his “twin of evil” on this tour. (BTW, this is also the last show of the season at Lakewood.)

The winner can pick up tickets at the venue Thursday night.

Good luck!

. . Mr. Manson has, in the Words of Frank Sinatra, “done it His way”. My Compliments, sir! I, well, might be a bit older than the nominal ‘Marilyn Manson’ crowd . . nonetheless!, I respect the man!, as well as his audacity, creativity and individualism. The same idiosynchrasies I persist in cultivating. I would LOVE to take a wonderful young lady to behold that . . . individualism. – CLIFF BALDOWSKI (404-344-5868)

I have been obsessed with Rob Zombie since I was 8 years while playing twisted metal, and hearing Dragula. I have always wanted to see him in concert. They are both great idols of mine. Atlanta Knight Ryderz Designated Drivers protecting our roads since 2012 585-360-3180

I want to go because I’m a big fan of Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie. I’ve been collecting CD from both of them and really what to see them in concert.

My mom introduced me to Manson when I was in Middle school……… I’m such a huge Manson fan that I was just at the Doctor’s and they told me that I have a mild case of pneumonia and I’m still going to find a way to go to the concert!

My husband has never been to a concert of any kind. When we first started out, we worked at the same place and every night on the way in we would listen to Rob Zombie to get in gear for work. There was a mix but always Rob and some Manson. It would be unbelievably awesome to take him to this and it is not something we could afford.

So i just men the man I plan on marrying (figerscrossed) about a month ago. This is a huge deal to me seeing as how I gave up on ever finding love after my last tormented relationship. He is a huge Marilyn Manson fan and although I am not I would love to take him to show him how much i appreciate him. I cannot afford the tickets right now or I would have already bought them. Help me find love again…please?

I live 5 hours away and have to drive up for my preop appointment the 26th and then again 3 weeks later for surgery. If I had tickets to this it would make at least one of the trips worth it…. :P

Marilyn Manson has been a symbol of individuality and self-awareness for almost 20 years. He has made my teenage years a lot easier to deal with, and I could not be more thankful for his creations as an artist and simply his existence as the person he is on earth. And yeah, I’m a zombie fan. But I just have to say that Marilyn Manson will always come first in my list of great artists. I want these/this ticket(s) because I’m not sure how much longer Manson will tour, they would be an outstanding gift to me and I would be forever thankful for them.

Bein 27 Manson upcoming in my time, it wasnt till later in his career I have learned much more about him as a person and his beliefs. Gained much respect from me after reading his life story and seeing his talk about politics on Larry King.

I’ve been a huge fan of Manson since.. well.. forever. I could go on and on about why I deserve these tickets, but I’ll spare the details. If I were to get these.. I would easily be the happiest panda on earth. Have you ever seen a happy panda? Probably not. But if you choose me, that will all change. So please, I beg of thee, choose me! Manson is a huge inspiration in my life, especially on an artistic level. He really inspired me to become a writer, and keep pursuing what I love to do in life. So yes.. please.. :D ?

Yeah Marilyn Manson is that guy with that music that get me going when it time to get a party started. Plus his style and creativity is amazing.

I work for the Southern Baptists….please give me a night off from the real evil…and let me go see these soft-evil Gods do their thing. I promise to throw a bat on stage for MM to munch on.

One of my best friends thinks Rob Zombie is HOT! I really enjoy Rob and Marilyn’s music, but watching my friend undressing Rob with her eyes would make my year!!!

I think I should get them because I am swimming in medical bill debt from two car wrecks where the people who hit me had insufficient insurance to cover all of my medical bills, much less the personals I lost in my vehicle and having to take on a car payment as well. Further, I was sheltered growing up as a child and never got to listen to artists like Marilyn or Rob and I now that I am older, I can honestly tell you that they are two of my favorites. Such great lyricists they both are. I would love to go to this show!

My fiance would die for these tickets. We’re huge fans and Manson & Zombie are both on the “list to see live.” I rock out to Zombie while cleaning house and he loves it!! Pick me, pick me!! :)

I remember seeing Manson on “The Wonder Years” show growing up and was interested in seeing him in concert. Maybe he will make reference to Winnie Cooper and Kevin???
